The WageWise financial literacy programme is currently running a radio campaign on five regional radio stations. Each week we host a talk show with a qualified financial planner who is a member of the Financial Planning Institute of Southern Africa (FPI) and some of the WageWise workshop trainers.

These talk shows included lively discussions on various financial literacy topics, all intended to help the listeners deal with financial challenges they may be experiencing, especially during these difficult times resulting from the Covid-19 pandemic and the lockdown. Listeners were also invited to call in with any questions they had. Learn more about the radio talk shows and listen to the podcasts.

This week we’re talking budgeting on regional radio

Budgeting and how to tackle budgeting during the COVID-19 pandemic when many people are experiencing a reduced income or complete loss of income was discussed. We offered listeners tips on how to reduce their spending, how to save and how to communicate with your family about any financial difficulties during this difficult time.

Talk shows were held on the following radio stations:

A competition was held for listeners to answer a question related to the talk show and the lucky prize winner won a R1,000 deposit into a Meerkat savings account (FSP No.: 46535) and also received a free budget consultation and credit report.  Please find the ASISA Foundation WageWise Radio Competition rules here.
